Four Nominations for “Two Gents”

By | Uncategorized

We were very excited to find out that our 2012 production of “Two Gents” was nominated for four awards by My Entertainment World (www.myentertainmentworld.ca), in the category of Regional Theatre:

Best Production

Best Ensemble

Best Director: Brendan McMurtry-Howlett

Best Supporting Actor: David Patrick Flemming (seen above as Speed-making a run for it)

Both Brendan and David were interviewed by Kelly Bedard about their nominations and below they answer the question: Do you have a favourite moment in the production?

Brendan: In the very first scene, the audience watches as the servant Speed (played by David) comes running all the way across the field behind our stage carrying a huge armful of suitcases, running late for the train, screaming his master’s name the whole way, and the wipes out just before he reaches the stage in a mess of flying parcels. You would never be able to stage something like that in a theatre and it was the epitome of why I love that outdoor space.

David: Standing in the wings waiting to come on and looking at this little intimate charming stage in the middle of a park. Humbly lit with hundreds of people hanging on to every word. It was a beautiful image.

Congratulations to all the nominees!
